Holy shit this was awful. The author had the writing skills of a self important, sexist, 13 yo boy. Honesty, that might not be fair to 13 yo boys. @Avanders I‘ll mail back on Monday. #tbrread #wintergames #tmskellington

BethM @Crimson613 where do you live that they don‘t have eggnog? It‘s a thick dairy based drink- milk, eggs, cream, sugar- generally vanillas flavored often spiked with rum. It‘s amaze balls. I don‘t generally shop bc I hate the insanity of the crowds and try to buy presents over the course of a few months. I will shop if needed and the deal@is good enough. 1w
Crimson613 @BethM I'm in IL, I've heard about it before but never seen it, RIIIIIPPPP that sounds like my death, too much dairy but I'd probably try it anyway 💀 😂 Ohh good idea, I don't shop at the big stores for the same reason, I remember going once and just Nope, not worth it. But most ppl aren't at bookstores in black Friday so more for me 😉 1w

xicanti Pierce Brown and Sally Green are both fabulous on audio. I also highly recommend CHIME by Franny Billingsley, STARDUST by Neil Gaiman, N.K.

BethM @Avanders I‘m watching it Saturday when my husband is at work and I finally have remote control 😂 1mo
Avanders Lol fair! 😂 Oh yeah, I see that in your post now.. I jumped the gun 😁 1mo
BethM @Hooked_on_books by the end I was skimming so I missed that. But I agree it just wasn‘t good. I really enjoyed Rules of Magic. But they seemed like they were written by different authors. 1mo
BethM @Avanders the verdict is ... gasp... the movie is much better than the book. I also think it ages really well- I liked it a lot. 1mo
